|Del Sur explorers admiring their state
flower-the California Golden Poppy!
What’s in that Scat?
Last week I roamed all the way to California, the Golden State to visit my 70 fifth-grade friends at Del Sur Elementary School. Together we traveled to the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve where we explored this cool state park. Even though there weren’t a lot of poppies out due to the lack of rain this past winter, we still had a fabulous day learning in the Visitors Center and hiking with Ranger Jean where we learned about the native plants, the food chain and the unique Native American history of the park. We even played Project Wild games outside!
Here is what Jacob said when he discovered scat during the hike:
“I found a hollow bird bone, but I think it’s a feather. I found it inside dried up coyote poop!”
WOW, that’s AWESOME! I am glad that he washed his hands before eating lunch!
All the Del Sur students ended the day by receiving their own Buddy Bison to take on future park trips AND by being sworn in as Junior Rangers. Thank you to Ranger Jean and the wonderful park volunteers!
And a huge Buddy Bison THANK YOU to First Solar for sponsoring such a memorable experience!
